Re: 2011 Tour de France

Nervous last few kilometres but it's now official: Cadel Evans is the winner of the Tour de France.

30 years after Phil Anderson, another Australian, became the first non-European to wear the yellow jersey Evans, the first Australian to be on the podium for the yellow, the first Australian to win the world championship, is the first Australian to win the tour. Full credit to BMC, they put together a great team to support him and helped him manage the lead up so that he was in great nick and form for the race that mattered. He's also the oldest rider to win since 1928 at 34 years of age.
